Beautiful sweater!  I always admire people who can knit something as complicated as a sweater.  All I can knit is a dishcloth or a scarf.

You're up on me, I don't even have the first clue on even how to knit!

Re: A sweater i knitted this winter...

I admire and respect anyone who can do anything with their hands because I know the time and talent it takes.

 

I have a best friend who knits afghans, sweaters, hats, etc for me when someone I know (or have even met) is having a baby.

 

I pay her for making them for me.  I just give her the basic colors of the nursery for the baby and she uses her imagination and comes up with some really neat ideas.

 

I've mentioned this here before.  My other friend and I eat out all of the time so we have become friends with various waitresses.  One in particular got married and then was pregnant.  We went through the journey with her each week.  

 

She made the baby's room a Superman theme.  My knitting friend found the exact colors of Superman's outfit (cape, etc).  She knitted the afghan, tiny sweater and even found a Superman onsie!  I have pictures of the girl holding it (her name is Katie).

 

Another she did for my daughter's friend was in gray's (various shades).  It was the theme of 'clouds'.  It was amazing.

 

One recently was (again in various shades of gray??) What's that about?  She made a beautiful sweater, hate and afghan in yellows, greens, with creme colors and gray (sounds weird but it was amazing and since they didn't know the sex of the baby it was perfect).

 

I won't bore you with the others but you get the idea.  @Tweety68  Your sweater is beautiful!  You are really talented.  

 

Please continue to share with us the various things you've made.  Perhaps it will click with someone and you might be responsible for getting them back into knitting.

 

I used to crochet scarves for a friend's church thermol unit in the Winter.  They were very colorful.  I also made a huge afghan for my little sister to take to work.  She worked at a Hospice place.  It was kept there for patients to cheer them up.  The colors were various colors of crayola crayons.

 

People who visited the patients wanted me to make one for them.  My sister told them "My sister said she felt like God had given her the talent to make this just for the Hospice.  These colors will never be repeated".

 

As far as I know, it's still there.
